Restaurant description

Found on the west side of the 32nd floor of London’s skyline-dominating Shard building, Rainer Becker's Oblix offers his signature style of upscale, sophisticated, urban dining. A flash open kitchen, complete with mesmerising spit roast and sizzling charcoal grill, brings a touch of theatre to the clean-cut, minimalist dining room.

Alongside succulent meats from the rotisserie and supremely fresh seafood dishes, the Oblix menu features a range of luxury meat cuts finished on the josper grill. Enjoy dishes like lamb chops with harissa and yoghurt, grilled Dover sole with parsley butter or Porterhouse steak to share. Diners can be directed through the staggering wine list at the interactive sommelier station: the first of its kind in London. Choose from cherry-picked international bottles, and peruse some of the world’s most-prized vintages.

Afternoon tea at Oblix West pays homage to the capital, blending ingredients sourced from favourite local purveyors found throughout London. The super-slick bar at Oblix in London offers a more relaxed vibe, with guests treated to express deli options and decadent weekend brunches, while a visionary cocktail menu offers mixes designed to match the food.

In one of London’s most sought-after settings, Oblix West at The Shard is a 3-minute walk from London Bridge stations.

Oblix operates a smart dress code. Gym trainers, running shoes, flip flops, sports wear, and baseball caps are not allowed. Please note any decision regarding the suitability of a guest's appearance will be entirely at the discretion of the management.

If you have any allergy or dietary requirements, please contact our reservations team at least 24 hours prior to your afternoon tea booking.

    I booked a table for four to celebrate my birthday last Sunday. We had an afternoon tea. Service, food, and atmosphere have been beyond my expectations. My parents were stunned by the wonderful ambience and totally satisfied with the delicious cakes, sandwiches, and tea. The manager has been extremely kind to offer us a table near the window, when I asked whether there was one available. I have no hesitation to say that this has been the best birthday celebration of my life. Thank you for making it a magic day.

    Food and service was good - though it took while to get the Veggie and Vegan menu - had to ask twice

    Nice food, very fresh, but one of our side dishes was forgotten so our food started to go cold while we waited for that. We were seated in a booth away from the window, so actually could have been in any restaurant as we didn't have the view. The waiter was very attentive though (apart from forgetting the side order of potatoes).

    The view of the restaurant is the only thing that makes the experience a little enjoyable. Food menu is dull, with no sensational or different options than a tapas restaurant. Since we were not impressed by options order for 3 starters before deciding if a main is something woth the price. The hot starter, octopus was the only one that was well seasoned and decent presented. The Cesar salad and salmon were dull in taste and just thrown on the plate, not appealing in presentation, looking like one of our friend tryed to cook to impress. We shared the ideas of how we felt about the ingredients in the 2 cold sides with the hostess and the supervisor and the discussions felt one way. Apologies and that was all. We finished our cocktails and went to a different restaurant in the area for the night. On the way out we asked the hostess at the entry of Aquashard/ Hutong about the menu and location and was just send to look online. Disappointed by the experience as we travelled from Liverpool and wanted to have a nice surprise dinner for my partner.
